Kaua’i Dolphins

Watching our dolphins at play is a favorite pastime here on the North shore of Kaua’i!

The Hawaiian name for all species of dolphins found in Hawaiian waters is Nai’a. There are four species of dolphins found in the waters around Kauai: Pacific Bottlenose Dolphin, the Rough-toothed Dolphin, the Spotted Dolphin and the Spinner Dolphin. Other dolphin species have been known to pass through the islands but are considered rare.

Our guests really enjoy seeing two of our most popular species ~ the Bottlenose Dolphins and the Spinner Dolphins. Catching sight of them from our oceanfront vacation rentals is the norm. Guests love to sit on their private lanai and gaze out to sea and take dolphins and whales in season.

Even more exciting is when you get to get THIS close to dolphin. They can be very playful!
